Control any motor
and you only have to get to know, and use, one series of inverters
Functional safety included
from compact devices to modular multi-axis systems with single-axis and double-axis modules
Rapid, straightforward commissioning
as the electronic rating plate supplies all the gear unit and motor data
When developing our new MOVI-C® modular automation system, one of the key things we looked at was whether current inverter technology will cope with the automation tasks of the next few decades. One approach would have been to take pre-existing components that are technically sound, tried-and-tested and, most importantly, reliable – and make them even better.
Instead, we chose to completely re-engineer inverter technology and take automation technology based on MOVI-C® to a whole new level. After all, we believe the future of automation is mapped out in every component, including inverter technology. That is precisely why the MOVI-C® modular automation system includes new MOVIDRIVE® application inverters. Although the name hasn't changed, the inverters have been completely redeveloped and redesigned. The end result is a new inverter platform for all standard motors.
The MOVIDRIVE® application inverters are available as single-axis application inverters with rated outputs up to 315 kW and as modular multi-axis systems incorporating single-axis and double-axis modules with rated currents up to 180 A. They exhibit an overload capacity of up to 250% for dynamic motions. Both as single-axis application inverters and in the modular design, "made by SEW-EURODRIVE" inverter technology controls and monitors all types of motors, from synchronous and asynchronous AC motors with/without an encoder to asynchronous motors with LSPM technology or synchronous and asynchronous linear motors. Functional safety is of course built in and even the basic unit incorporates the safety function STO in PL e. More than 15 additional safety functions can be incorporated using safety option cards.
To get your motor up and running, you can read off and input the type designation on the motor's electronic rating plate. Alternatively, you can also use the electronic catalog in the MOVISUITE® engineering software.
If your motor is not recognized, that's no problem either, as it can be brought into operation simply by using a calibration function. What's more, energy-saving functions such as regenerative power supply units, energy storage units and a standby mode ensure optimum energy efficiency. During breaks in operation, standby mode reduces the power consumption of the application inverter by up to 85% – without losing communication with the overarching PLC.
Applications are put into operation using both graphical editors, which make it incredibly easy to create motion functions, and automatic IEC code generation, which is an entry-level sequence programming solution.
Everything falls into place in our new MOVI-C® modular automation system – the engineering software matches the control and inverter technology and everything comes together seamlessly with the drive technology.
Tell us what you need and we will offer you a customized, future-proof automation solution.
A digital data cable makes the motor an active part of your data network, providing all motor data – such as encoder data, temperature data, commissioning data, and data from other sensors – to the application inverter and the connected networks at any time. This information can be used to capture detailed operational data and compile maintenance forecasts. As the type designations, serial numbers and logistics data associated with motors are identified and supplied automatically, an inventory of all the drives in a plant can be compiled automatically at the touch of a button. Repairs, exchanges and enhancements can be tracked and traced at any time.
Integrated into the inverter technology
Due to the requirements laid down in technical standards and the drive to have humans and machines working hand in hand, the number of plant areas equipped with functional safety technology is constantly growing. As a result, functional safety is an integral part of any application.
By introducing MOVISAFE® CS..A safety cards, SEW EURODRIVE has made functional safety an integral element of all MOVI C® application inverters. Even the basic unit in the MOVIDRIVE® series features STO in PL e. All higher-level safety functions are achieved by inserting an option card, including all the necessary connections to the inverter technology – encoder, communication and STO. This helps you reduce costs to only what is necessary to achieve the functions you actually need.
